Geneseo Goes Test Optional for Early Decision

An explanation from the university says that the option is "expressly designed for candidates who have achieved outstanding records of academic success in their high school studies – including such measures as the results of advanced placement/international baccalaureate exams – but who believe that their SAT/ACT results are neither commensurate with their achievements nor indicative of their potential for continued success in college." While many colleges have in recent years been going SAT-optional, Geneseo is the second institution (following American University) recently to adopt this for early decision applicants.
